A modest man from mandrake
travelled rich to the city
he had a need to discover
a use for his newly-found wealth

Because he was human
Because he had goodness
Because he was moral
They called him insane

Delusions of grandeur
Visions of splendour
A manic depressive
He walks in the rain

eyes wide open
Heart undefended
innocence untarnished

Cinderella man
Doing what you can
They can't understand
What it means

cinderella man
hang on to your plans
try as they might
they cannot steal your dreams

in the betrayal of his love he awakened
to face a world of cold reality
and a look in the eyes of the hungry
awakened him to what he could do

He held up his riches
To challenge the hungry
Purposeful motion
For one so insane

They tried to fight him
Just couldn't beat him
This manic depressive
Who walks in the rain
